Program description

Program description

Aerospace Engineering

The BEng Aerospace Engineering provides you with a basic preparation for professional careers in the aerospace industry (design, development, testing and operation of vehicles and systems), as well as in other areas, such as research, management, technical development and finance.
We aim to instill not just a theoretical knowledge of engineering science, but also a solid base of practical skills, an understanding of design, comprehension of the commercial world and competence in transferable skills (problem solving, team working, creativity and IT).

The degree also provides an excellent route for individuals wishing to proceed to postgraduate education as quickly as possible.

Years 1 and 2 of this course are common with those of the MEng in Aerospace Engineering. Subject to satisfactory performance, it is possible for you to transfer to one of our MEng courses.


The core BEng course is identical with the first two years of the MEng course. This course achieves the same learning outcomes for those years. The course is intended to provide you with the skills necessary for a successful career in industry. In addition, it provides a route into postgraduate learning that is tailored to individual areas of interest, so that students with a BEng qualification can go on to apply for an MSc course in a more specialised area of Engineering.

Satisfactory completion of the course will give you:

Special Features

The first year of study establishes a strategic overview of the main areas of aerospace engineering and introduces you to underlying science and mathematics. The second and third years develop the key technical knowledge and understanding that you need for entry into industry or postgraduate study.

Throughout all years at Manchester, there is a strong focus on the attainment of transferable skills, such as analysis, design, modelling, organisation and problem-solving. This enables you to pursue careers in a range of high technology fields after graduation, as engineers, consultants, managers or researches.

Admission requirements

Applicants taking A Levels are normally expected to offer three full A Levels. The majority of courses at the University require grades in the region of AAA-ABB at A Level. There are a few courses that require lower grades and some courses that require higher grades. Applicants are advised to check the specific entry requirements for their chosen course.

If you are taking more than three A-levels, please be aware that any additional A-levels will not be included within their offer. We only make offers consisting of three A-level grades.

Practical Science

Practical skills are a crucial part of science education and therefore there will be a requirement to pass the practical element of any science A Level taken. Where applicants are applying for science and related degrees, this is likely to be made explicit in the offers you will receive.

English language requirements

English Language requirements vary by course and department but are usually the equivalent of IELTS 6.0–7.0 (or 5.5 for foundation courses).

Some Schools ask that the appropriate score has been met before you apply for a course while other departments give conditional offers subject to you achieving our general entry requirement level of English Language proficiency before starting the course.
